Sunday morning, we had our friends over for a Cults and Killers themed brunch. Dean and I first talked about throwing this party a couple months ago to celebrate our wedding, our (minor) move, and James’s (big) move. But, ya know, we weren’t timely so it became a Halloween brunch instead. I think from a glance (and you might have to squint if you’re glancing at Dave or Ian), it looks like everyone’s dressed in their Sunday best- funny thing about serial killer fashions…
Serial Mom ready to murder some early-birthday cake. All that’s missing from Kristy’s look is a bloody poker but, believe me, we couldn’t find one. Dave as a thug. Dude is a lightening fast crafter- he fashioned this costume out of old sheets in 30 minutes! Also, I think he looks rad in eyeliner.
Don’t worry- the rat poison is just a bottle of fish oil in disguise. The femme fatale is innocently trying to slip Justin some omega-3s! Jeremy came as Jack the Ripper- though you can find him dressed this sharply any day of the week. (For real.)
Patrick Bateman, complete with bone white business cards. I think it’s the greatest that Nate drove people home with a face covered in blood. ‘Crazy Legs’ Ian dressed up as a fiery haired maniac. His grandma made him those granny square pants- too cute!
James is supposed to be Albert Fish but the fake mustache just makes him look extra-Italian. Dean and I dressed up as Ian Brady and Myra Hindley. It cracks me up that the only Myra costume I could find through an internet search was another Asian girl. I guess most people aren’t this tasteless.
Our badass spread included: pozole, baked apples, tempeh bacon, pumpkin pancakes, grapes, and french press coffee. Fixins: chili peppers, avocado, onion. Off frame there was a pitcher of mimosas.
Baked Apples: this is essentially the same recipe as James’s baked pears except that I used apples and filled ’em with sugar, cinnamon, and pecans.
James used this recipe as a guideline for the pozole. And, of course, he used the hearts of his fallen enemies instead of pork. He’s a traditionalist.
